As Pocahontas so beautifully sang “What I love most about rivers is you can’t step in the same river twice. The water’s always changing, always flowing.” This lyric sums up Disney perfectly. There is always something new to experience, be it a new resort, a new restaurant, or a new attraction. Here are a few of my favorites.

No one does a theme like Disney, and nowhere is that more evident than at Disney Resorts. Animal Kingdom Lodge is a totally immersive African experience, including the sights, sounds and smells. But my favorite resort pool is far and away the shared pool of the Yacht and Beach Clubs. Not only does this pool feature a slide from atop a replica shipwreck and a lazy river, it has a fantastic sandy bottom.

Dining is among our favorite Disney activities. For table service, Hollywood Studios’ Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater is a fabulous retro adventure. Restaurantosaurus at the Animal Kingdom is the perfect, quick-service time travel trip to the age of dinosaurs, complete with a blast from the past dinosaur radio station.

And, of course, the main reason people visit Disney is the rides. My favorite is Star Tours. I love the wookiee planet!
